Angus Young of AC/DC connects to two separate (and different) amps, too, but he does it 'cause he uses one for rhythm and the other for soloing.


Mono. 1 guitar = mono
unless of course it has a stereo output in which you could send your different pickups to different amps, but only rickenbacker makes those standard.

He had the 10 band KFK made so he only needed 1 pedal to boost both of his amps, instead of needing 3 (2 eqs, and a y splitter)

the_bleeding: You gotta stop replying to my questions 'cause you're making me look like the dumbass that I am! Haha Jokes apart, dude... thanks. You know about guitars.

So the KK eq pedal can be used to eq two amps... I think I'd get that instead of the regular MXR eq pedal. Like Amplitude said, the two outputs may be useful at some point in life.

But it seems we haven't mentioned the reason for running two amps instead of one. Why? Sounds more powerful?

I have no idea why Kerry would. From what i understand they're dialed in the same. So probably more power/volume.

But then you get guys like Mark Morton from Lamb Of God... He uses 2 mesa mark IV's, but with the mids dialed in the opposite from each other on each head so he has a scooped head and a boosted head. Fills in the sound without making it terribly muddy.

And then you have the dudes from sunn. Who just have a pile of amps and turn them all to max and assault people with their volumes.

Does whatever you want man.

if we take the maxim 'something is only as strong as it's weakest link',
then it follows that by adding more stuff to an amp, there is more change of something dragging the quality down or something going bad.

That doesnt neccecarily mean a amp with lots of parts is bad if the parts are all high quality..
